COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

COVID UPDATE – JULY 22, 2021

All QAF and gallery events will be in line with provincial health orders currently in place. The following protocols will be in place for all events: use of hand sanitizer, ‘traffic’ signage, required pre-registration, limiting the number of folks in the SUM gallery space, elevator and lobby, encouraging distancing, and use of outdoor venues/online options as possible. We will revisit this policy periodically and revise accordingly as new orders are announced.

We encourage everyone attending QAF to wear a mask. Masks will be provided on site.
